Hey guys just was wondering what the title says. For me it has to be cat stevens, hes just an amazing guitarists, and has really stood the test of time. He just put out a greatest hits cd called "gold". I think everyone should think about getting it. Anyways feel free to comment on cat himself, or leave your own recommendations. Later

I didn't know bass players were included. If so, Jamerson would definitely have made my list. One of my all-time favorite musicians on any instrument.

Obviously the question was favourite guitarists, not neccessarily if in everyones oppinion they are good or not, so these are my favourites (in no particular order).

Slash (he inspired me to pick up a guitar, and always own Les Paul's)
Hendrix (well, just cause he is Hendrix !!)
Clapton (you can feel the emotion with every note)
Satriani (just something about the way he plays)
Matt Bellamy (from the Band MUSE)
Neol Gallagher (OASIS, for proving 3 chords can still make a cool guitar based song to listen to)

Yngwie Malmsteen
Vinnie Moore
John Petrucci
Steve Vai
Joe Satriani
Gary Moore

Alvin Lee
Angus Young
Freddie King
B.B. King
Leslie West

The list could go on........... but...

These are the ones i thought of right now, in no particular order.
Also you should all check out Albert J?rvinen, finnish guitarist who played in the band Hurriganes. He's passed on now but man he made alot of great stuff, i'm sure other finns here will agree

I've never really thought of Cat as a guitarist but more of a great musician, i love his music! Maybe i should start listening to his playing

Because this is a forum about Japanese guitars:

There's a Japanese guitarist named Char who is one of my favorites.

He's been around a long time (since the mid-70's) and really needs more exposure in North America and Europe.

He's had some signature MIJ guitar models, but I forget which manufacturers. I'll have to look that up again.
